The Mariner's Grandson

Duncan Craig is divorced, lonely, and just turned fifty. He hasn’t been on a date in years and is stuck in a rut. Just as two new women enter his life, he learns he has pancreatic cancer.  

Meanwhile, his father Jack, suffering from advanced dementia, is visited at his nursing home by a threatening stranger. As Jack’s fragmented memories slowly resurface, Duncan races to identify the intruder. At each turn, he unearths a new clue that only deepens the mystery.

While trying to piece together Jack’s untold past, Duncan grows closer to his father, and to his ancestry, than ever before.  As he grapples with his cancer diagnosis, two love interests, and an ailing father with an unwelcome visitor, Duncan is taken on an unexpected journey of mystery, romance, and self-discovery.
